What Houzz contributors are saying:
Crape myrtle is a wonderful ornamental tree to use anywhere in your yard. Make sure to allow enough room for its spread when planting it next to your house, sidewalk or driveway.It's a good choice next to a patio (see first photograph). Its form adds sculpture, its flowers add color and its leaves provide dappled shade.
While designing the home, architect Matthew Thompson gave Enid A Pattern Language by Christopher Alexander. "I was instantly amazed. It described all the things I had always thought about houses but had never articulated — what works and what doesn't. Why some rooms feel good and others push you away," she says. "Our home is the house the Pattern Language built."
